MADISON MOUNTED HORSE PATROL

The Madison Police Department Mounted Unit currently has two full-time officers and four part-time officers. The unit regularly works in the downtown area, to help manage bar crowds and other issues. Mounted officers also work special events, assist in search and rescue efforts, and make community/public appearances.

 

The unit was re-established in 2007 after a 15 year absence due to staffing and budget costs. In 2008, the non-profit, "Friends of Madison Mounted Horse Patrol" was developed to help ensure the unit's existence into the future. They conduct fundraising efforts to assist in paying for the unit's horse care and equipment needs.
